Norman Witcher - Somebody's Been Rocking My Boat (Poor Boy 45-102)
Poor Boy Records from Muncie, Indiana, was harmonica legend Wayne Raney's attempt to get into the record bussines as an entrepreneur. He had been a recording artist since the 1930s and had waxed numerous sessions for King with the Delmore Brothers as well as operating a mail order business to sell harmonicas and instruction books. But in the late 1950s, his popularity as a musician faded and he began to work as a DJ on WCKY again (a station he had already appeared on in the early 1940s) and founded the Poor Boy label along with Jimmie Zack in 1958.
The first record release was by Raney himself, comprising "We Need a Whole Lot More of Jesus (and a Lot Less Rock and Roll)" b/w "Don't You Think It's Time." Especially the A side brought Raney to the attention of the young folk music scene. Poor Boy was active until around 1960, when Raney closed down his harmonica mail order business and moved to Concord, Arkansas, where he built up a big record business, including a recording studio, his label Rimrock Records, and a pressing plant. Most of the song material was written by Raney and Zack, published by Oletta Publishing, later associated with a lot of Rimrock material.
